was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction almost a copy cat demonstration against our facility in cairo. >> that turned out to be wrong. some question senator mccain is asking that he might get answers to this. as for holding up ms. rice's nomination of secretary of state over this. key people in washington are tripped up on false intelligence in the past. people like condoleeza rice. >> it is time to stop the deceit and time to stop trying to deceive the world, and to offer up his weapons of mass destruction so that he can be disarmed. >> not about a data point here or there but about what he is doing. right up until the end, sadam hussain continued to harbor weapons of mass destruction and hide his illegal nuclear weapon activity. he went onto become the secretary of state. >> back then she was supported despite the fact that she fell for bad intelligence. >> she is a great american success story. this is what america is all about. a young woman who through up where americans were not treated equally. we should have been celebrating i believe this remarkable american success story. al
of regional stability and peace. >> we start with nbc's jim macedo in cairo. who what are the details? >> reporter: well, steve, most importantly, starting at 2:00 p.m. as you mentioned israel stops all military action in israel and hamas stops launching rockets on israel and carrying out border attacks on israeli troops but this is the key thing. there is no signed formal agreement here. instead, israel and hamas reached an understanding, a kind of exchange of quiet for quiet. the first phase of a broader agreement. that should be followed by more intense negotiations, those will be anchored and guaranteed we understand by egypt and the united states. to try to resolve the key demands on both sides. of course, for hamas, the lifting of that 6-year-old blockade of gaza. for israel, it's stopping all the weapons smuggling. but neither will happen immediately. at least, however, they have agreed in principle to these demands and the need to work them out. you had a clip of secretary clinton. she went on to call the cease-fire deal a step in the right direction. she said she looks forwar
-- that anti-islamic video that sparked the riots in cairo. that's the confusion, that film or a terrorist attack? they got 20 intelligence reports blaming the film riot in cairo. but, this is critical, those reports were disproved over time. but disproved after petraeus made his initial presentation to congress. so david petraeus believes there's a lot of confusion and a lot of misrepresentation of what he originally told congress when he briefed them initially after the attacks. he wants to go up there tomorrow, sort it all out. he will also say he had his own talking points separate from u.n. ambassador susan rice. that came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking point. so he wants to get all this sorted out. he believes it was the al qaeda sympathizer group ansar al sharia that was responsible for the attacks. >> so the question, barbara, is he is convinced that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi had nothing, nothing to do with that anti-muslim video that'd been posted on youtube, that this was a terrorist attack by this al qaeda affiliated organiz
-fire for israel and hamas. any details have yet to be worked out. the next direct talks happen in k cairo. meanwhile, the military is not commenting on the long oh-range rockets, the same type that were fired into israel. hamas says the can conflict caused $1.2 billion to the economy. >>> in egypt, dueling rallies are planned. police and protesters are planned at tahrir square. jim maceda is live in cairo. can you put a perspective on this? i understand there are going to be demonstrations from both sides. >> that's absolutely right. i'll tell you, alex, you won't see many of them down below me here in tahrir square, nor will you see them throwing rocks at the police. but the average egyptians, since there's no polling on this, they are just as worried and angry about what morsi has done. morsi in putting his own will, his own voice above the wall, that he's, in fact, snuffing out the will of the people and all those other voices of egyptians who are not muslim brotherhood. many egyptians were killed down below and up to 11 thour,000, i understand, wounded since the uprising, did that in
about our embassy in cairo egypt. local tv host had played this clip incessantly and raging muslims -- enraging muslims throughout egypt who stormed our embassy and tore down the american flag and put up an islamist flag. a few hours later the -- they said it was over the video even though the next day the president referred to it as an act of terror. four americans were killed including our ambassador. ever since then, our republican friends have been using this terror attack, i'm sorry did i say using? i meant exploiting this terror attack to smear the president in any way they can. as you know, in 9-11-01 a terror attack is a reason to unite and cheer a president and in 9-11-12, it is an excuse to smear a president. there have been rumors of course that the president might be nominating susan rice, our u.n. ambassador to be his next secretary of state. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with j
, but it's in many of the papers this morning, angry protesters filling tahrir square in cairo. they're stepping up pressure for their president to rescind a decree that they say threaten the nation with a new era of autocracy. there's the picture on the front page of the washington times. we will be talking about this on sunday on the washington journal. back to the phone calls. john in san jose, california, independent. caller: thanks so much for having me. good morning. i have a really good friend who's a teacher at a high school we attended when we were in high school. one of the things she complains about the most is just how rigid the system is. really, i think it's ironic that we continue to say teachers are important, although teachers for the most part are not in charge of their own profession. the system should be a little bit more organic in the sense that if a teacher has a great idea she can rally real talent her or him. the other of thing i wanted to share is there's a whole system within the system that provides individualized education plans to students who have speci
egypt might go in all of this? >> i think egypt, look, it's quarter to a third of the arab world. cairo is one of the historical centers of the arab world. we don't have a good reading on where these guys are going, the muslim brotherhood. i'm not sure they necessarily do. we don't know how much to take literally what they say and write. they've got their internal politics, the party, the government. there's issues between them and other forces in egypt. they came into government fairly narrowly. but they're clearly trying to deepen their base. so everyone's watching really closely what they're doing with the rewriting of egypt's constitution, how these people want to consolidate power. what they say in the middle east, it's one thing to win an election. that's the easy part. are they willing to lose an election, to set up a political dynamic where there's a level playing field? i don't think we know the answer. >> whenever we're talking israel and hamas, you have to think about iran and its role. some of the long-range missile sites they bombed yesterday in those 50 strikes had bombs s
bibi says to her about what israel's goals are and again when she goes to cairo and meets with president morsi which is arguably the most important stop on this trip. >> because he's the mediator. >> and president obama has developed a very interesting relationship over the past -- >> i think we have to hold onto morsi. >> with the president of egypt. >> don't you? >> absolutely. >> how important -- >> let's be clear -- >> always had the deal between israel and egypt in the interest of both countries and our country. can we keep that deal? there are some architecture for peace there? >> we're going to try to keep that deal absolutely, but, remember, we're complicit in part of what happened. obama when he took george michel's resignation and basically moved dennis ross out of the white house, he doesn't put a new program on the table. and when america walks away from this peace process or an effort to bring the two sides together and really lay out a plan, violence kicks up. so we have a bit of complicity and you you are seeing right now not a strategic presidency from obam
it is the cairo speech that you delivered in 2009 or your repeated and important declarations on prevention of iran's nuclear capabilities, actions matter most. don't mistake the former for the latter. and today i just have to step out of my role for a moment because as a historian today is the anniversary of my favorite ever presidential statement on the middle east. 70 years ago today, president franklin delano roosevelt issued the following statement for the people of the middle east. just imagine a president saying that. praise be to you and the name of god the passionate, the merciful. may god be upon you. this is a great day for you because behold a week, the american warriors have arrived. we have come here to fight the great jihad of freedom. we have come to set you free. today is the 70th anniversary of the landing on north africa and prisoner agreed jihad of american freedom once again but we don't remember that because words matter so much less than actions. if those are three broad lessons were the three most urgent issues on your agenda here won't repeat the words of my colleag
was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. megyn: when challenged yesterday on the story that ms. rice told several networks, the president said he, the white house, sent her out there with that explanation. >> as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. megyn: but if the president believed that their best intel five days after the attack suggested the video was to blame, then why did we see this moment in the presidential debates, the second one, where he claimed he was calling this terror from day one? >> i think it's interesting the president just said something
in benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the u.s. embassy in cairo and involved into a direct assault. there are indications extremists participated. there's a hedge there. but the benghazi attack was not referred to as a terrorist event. however, ambassador re is a cabinet member. that means she gets daily intelligence briefings like the president does, the content of those are not known. republican senators say that she misled the public and that they will block her confirmation as secretary of state. the white house is saying they can get at least five republicans to join the democratic majority to get her through and confirmed if nom napted as secretary. meantime cbs has learned that the current secretary of state hillary clinton will go to the hill and answer questions from congressional investigators but she's not likely to do that until the state department's own investigation is complete, sources close to that investigation say that likely won't happen until the end of december. >> they have not yet interviewed the secretary of state. >> they have not. two months in, investiga
the fence like what happened in cairo. there was clarity from the very beginning in this administration about what happened. what we didn't know is who and why. and that what's we are struggle something try to find out today. megyn: simon, do you deny the president linked what happened in benghazi to the video? >> the administration did. megyn: the president did. >> the idea that he blamed it for weeks. megyn: just if we -- i'm asking you. because i understand your argument. but when i listened to the president in the days after, there was no question that he was linking what happened in benghazi to the video. there was no question that he was doing that. >> what i have said on this show governor i don't think it matters. megyn: that's a different argument. that's different than you saying he didn't make the linkage. that's what mark is taking issue with. >> i'm saying it doesn't matter. what happened is what we knew from the beginning that it was a military-style attack. what there was confusion about inside the intelligence community and state department, cia, everybody, was what exac
taking pictures of some big a dent in cairo? we knew he was taking that picture, and you knew that it was an objective look at was happening at that time. i don't have any feel for that at all today. i don't know who is taking the pictures or that they are even working for a network. number one, notice the number of times if you watch more than one newscast. notice the number of times that you will see precisely the same video. when it comes from overseas in large measure because the networks don't have their own reporters and camera people over there any more and they have bought it from the same single source. what is wrong after all with having a local reporter covering the event? she knows the people. let's say that local reporter is reporting from tehran and that local reporter knows that if he or she makes a nice step in what he or she reports they are going to be arrested and thrown in jail. that is probably the worst thing that is going to happen. finally, i find that there is absolutely no willingness on the part of the critics to believe that object to the team journ
